Santa visits St. Davids clinic for pix with pets

Santa has seen it all in his yearly visits to St. Davids Vet Clinic.

The man in red has encountered pets on both the naughty and nice list – including the “chihuahua that year after year would try to bite Santa and a cat that left Santa a poop present on his lap,” says veterinarian Dr. Stephanie Hall.

But there have been “many, many more pets that loved cuddling for a photo and a treat.”

Pets and their owners will have the chance to meet the jolly old guy again when he visits the clinic on Four Mile Creek Road this Saturday, Nov. 26, for “Photos with Santa.”

All photos are uploaded to the clinic’s Facebook page and are available for sharing.

The annual open house drop-in, which began in 2013, runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“It’s a chance to connect with the community in a festive, fun-filled way,” said Hall.

She encourages everyone to come out for “a good laugh as we try to capture the perfect moment with Santa.”

It’s all free but donations are welcomed and will be directed to the St. Davids Lions guide dog program, Hall said.
